Glorious new rejacket of a Diana Wynne Jones favourite, featuring Chrestomanci - now a book with extra bits! SOMEONE IN THIS CLASS IS A WITCH. When the note, written in ordinary ballpoint, turns up in the homework books Mr Crossley is marking, he is very upset. For this is Larwood House, a school for witch-orphans, where witchcraft is utterly forbidden. And yet magic keeps breaking out all over the place - like measles! The last thing they need is a visit from the Divisional Inquisitor. If only Chrestomanci could come and sort out all the trouble.

A fun story, well written and the editing was well done. The children loved it. But I' don't understand why it was abridged!
The arrival of Chrestomanci.
I found the narration a bit stagey and some of the voices were not at all how I had heard them when I first read it. But it was a good listen nevertheless.
